The Skin I live in at East End Film Festival

London

As a part of their 2018 Temple Season, the East End Film Festival will be screening The Skin I Live in, Pedro Almodovar’s 2011 film that reconnected the famous director with Antonio Banderas after a 20-year hiatus. The movie tells the story of twisted plastic surgeon Robert Ledgard, who is experimenting in cultivating resistant artificial skin, using a young woman named Vera (a sensational Elena Anaya) as a guinea pig, captive in his private estate. Disclosing anything more would ruin what is an utterly disturbing yet genius film, with a staggering plot twist. Almodovar is a master in creating a tense atmosphere, and he does so skillfully in The Skin I Live In, a morbid yet tantalizing film that makes you feel like you too are trapped within an artificial, synthetic body.
